My new2me RC hit 224 deg today. Should I be ...
It was def hot as hell today ... but here's what it was doing:
45 mph on a city road, temp was 208-209 & rose to about 218.
Approaching a traffic light, I was afraid it was gonna go higher ... but the fans apparently dropped it back to 208-ish.
Took off & temp rose again to 220 -> 222.
Stopped at the mechanic I mentioned in my other thread. He said fans usually come on around 218 deg & didn't seem worried about the temps I mentioned ... but he didn't seem worried about much of anything.
20 minutes later on the way home after the mechanic visit, it hit 224 deg. I think that was the tops for the day.
Do I have a problem?? If not, what temp is a problem??
Edit: Damn, there are a zillion "heat" / "temperature" threads ... I've already read a couple, but still curious, a little nervous, but ignore this if you've already answered a bunch of them & can't stand to do another one.
